  • Sepinwall's The 20 Best Shows Made For Streaming

    I get it. They're more niche-y, but I would have loved to see Difficult People and/or Alone Together on here. Surprised that Mozart in the Jungle didn't make the cut. Great show.

    I really need to get on the BoJack thing. I really liked the one that we saw. 
  • What music are you streaming?

    I think I said this last year, but it bears repeating. Sia's Christmas album is the best Christmas album.

    A+ showing for Janet this episode. She has mad fighting skills. And a great guest role for Michael McKean.

    I wonder if the next twist is going to be that no one has actually been getting into the good place because the "accounting" was rigged by Shawn or someone in the bad place.
    That's what I thought too. How else would he be so sure he was going to get Doug Forcett?

    Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to walk to Edmonton to donate $85 to a mollusk charity. I'll be back in about three weeks.
    This is totally what I was thinking too, or what if there is no Good Place at all?

    One of those things where it might be best to let it die, regardless of its innocence. Kind of like "niggardly". Perfectly legitimate and non-racist word with no relation (other than phonetics), but you would be an asshole to die on that hill.
    I would say the same of chink in the armor. I almost literally twitch whenever I see or hear that phrase.
    Yeah, I stay away from all of that stuff. Legit different meaning or not I just don't want to go there even for the off chance that something could be heard wrong or misconstrued, or in case there is something in the roots that I'm unaware of. I just don't want any of it. The English language leaves us so many other ways to say things. No real difficulty in choosing a different route.
  • Top 5 Favorite Non- Bald Move Podcasts

    I just discovered 3 Songs Podcast with Bob Nastanovich from Pavement and Mike Hogan. Basically they each pick 3 songs and talk about the bands and it spins into stories and examination of the music. Great flow to it. Just a couple of friends chatting about music. Not the same as J&A, but sharing that sort of conversational ease that they have. I really recommend it for music fans. If you're into Pavement jump to #50 where they do the Pavement episode. It's just a joy to listen to. You find out about the time Gary Young hit Bob with the tour van. Tons of great context for their run as a band. Kind of being a fly on the wall where one dude tells his friend stories and thoughts about his time in the band. Very, very cool stuff.
